Tennis Elbow 2013 reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
After 16 Hours of Playing Time, I would like to draw a first Conclusion (without Multiplayer) ... Pros:-Career Mode offers enormous Depth with expansive Role-playing Elements-60 Levels of difficulty. A "too light" or "too heavy" does not exist for 99% of Players-The Animations on The Serve and the Basic Line game seem authentic and traceable-This Game is not a Arcade game but a sophisticated simulation-mod support is available in Scope and scope Quality first-class and provides additional Realism-The AI simply plays Comprehensible tennis and a "stupid" AI does not exist in the Game-Even a 10-Year-old Computer effortlessly creates 60 + FPS here. -Simple Control by Keyboard or Gamepad (highly recommended)-Inwarding Gameplay-You experience high-altitude flights and Low Blows in career mode and go through a Wave of Emotions Neutral:-The Mechanisms of Control can overwhelm a Player. Especially if he has little patience-The Learning Process can take a very long time if you underestimate the Depth of this Simulation negative:-Underground Menu management and Menu Graphics in 90 ' s-on style-The Sound effects are an absolute Cheekiness (All-in mods improve the Clearly))-Player modeling/Player textures are not state-of-the-art-The Animations in Volleyball Seem choppy. Still a few Words about the All-in-one mods which, in my Opinion, are indispensable ... There are 3 All-in-one mods for Tennis Elbow 2013. Sam's Megapatch 2013, MAXOU ATP 2016 and ITST 1.17. The Latter Mod Invariably focuses on multiplayer and therefore does not offer offline mode and therefore no offline career. So for offline players, and that includes me, there's "Sams Megapatch 2013" and "MAXOU ATP 2016." The First-named All-in-one mod is not further developed, but the latter is further developed and in my Opinion "Sams Megapatch 2013" does not beat in Terms of quality And is therefore in my Opinion the best All-in-one mod for Tennis Elbow 2013. MAXOU ATP 2016 offers:-Photorealistic 2D courts and largely well-made 3D courts-All real ATP and WTA tennis players over a 26-Year period (1990-2016)-Significantly more realistic and diverse Sound effects than in the vanilla version-Den Complete schedule of ATP including all associated 2D/3D courts (also usable for WTA)-Additional Settings in the Menus-Will still be further developed Conclusion: Who loves tennis, play a deep Simulation and no Arcade game Wants and is ready to familiarize with Patience in the Mechanisms of Control and for The Gameplay over graphics, which finds here for just over 20 Euros a real Pearl of the Gaming Industry. It's "only" 16 Hours I've spent this Game so far, But Tennis Elbow 2013 totally captivated me and I can't stop playing this Game. Absolute Buy recommendation!
